We had a very successful team meeting recently, and came up with some strong decisions regarding making more progress. Although it was acknowledged that everyone (almost) had full time jobs, people were feeling frustrated that progress was not more tangible.
We decided to go with the Link ECUs, and use an extra data logger for the information we require. They are also sending a wiring loom to enable us to run the engine. Dan has since found a friend who can run the ECUs for us, and has offered dyno and set up time also.
Major work is being done on the air inlets, with Prem, Franky and Mario now linking up with Dave Woodruff in America to find our best solution. Martin Hockenhull is drawing up all the modifications for us, including preparing the plenum drawing for machining after the company dealing with it encountered problems with overseas customers and were no longer able to help us complete it, though we are grateful for the superb work they did on it from the original design.
Peter Trevor compiled a list of jobs to enable us to have people focus on them to a deadline, in order to try and enable us to have the chassis running by Christmas.
The show body is away being slightly modified for a more professional fit to make it look even better for shows.
Dan Dole is drawing up a final version of the inlet trumpets which we are looking to have 3D printed.
The roll cage is being modified to allow the front swing arm to be closer to the forward bulkhead, with a revised position of the suspension unit. This will improve the situation of getting enough capacity of water to safely run the engine in the streamliner during our attempt.
The frame extensions have been made to fit the water tank behind the driver bulkhead, and in front of the engine, and Dan Marshall is completing the redesign of the chassis to fit.
We are extremely pleased to have Physical Digital on board as their work has already verified Dan’s engine design, and the fit into the chassis.
As soon as we receive the ECUs, Clayton can make the wiring harness and Peter can fit the sensors to the chassis.
As ever, we are grateful to all our partners, but in particular SRS Rail Systems UK and NGK who are proving a major part in our work.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
